If you visit a site with an expired certificate, is  your "conversation" with this site no longer encrypted?

Depends whether you override the browser and allow the certificate. If you allow it, and the URL shows "HTTPS" rather than "HTTP", it's still encrypted.
It's similar to self-generated certificates. You'll get the warning about it being invalid, but if you accept it anyway, you're still encrypted.
The "validity" (issued by a trusted authority) and expiration are entirely separate from the encryption.

"override the browser's objection" I mean, and force it to continue, or import the certificate, or whatever your particular browser says.
